2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)
The GL class is by far the most enjoyable and lovable vehicle that anyone requiring cargo space, passenger space, and snowy driving conditions could dream for. It handles beautifully. It abounds in standard luxury (although do add the well- designed P1 package and sunroof package; P1 is equipped with everything you'd want and nothing you wouldn't want) and the exterior lines are gorgeous. I have sampled the new Acura MDX, the Escalade, and the larger Lexus SUV's. There is simply no comparison. The BMW X5 is still too small, too slow without the V8, and the options are overpriced. If you drive the GL450, you will buy it. It's as simple as that.
Incredibly quiet cabin, even on the highway. Amazingly smooth ride, like a Mercedes S class. Absolutely gorgeous interior. Gorgeous leather and real birds-eye maple wood trim is stunning. Great sound system, and Mercedes Benz unmistakable and incomparable quality
It cannot be improved! Although it feels smaller and much more nimble than the Escalade, and shifts much more smoothly and rides much quieter than the Lexus, be aware that it is still a large truck; although still narrower than the fat new MDX. Gas mileage in the city is only 15 mpg
